Browns’ Erving, Cowboys’ Irving ejected on fifth play of game

Sunday’s game between the Browns and Cowboys barely got started before two players were ejected. 

Cleveland center Cam Erving and Dallas defensive lineman David Irving were ejected on the fifth play of the game for fighting. 

Erving and Irving scuffled after a play, with Erving pulling Irving’s helmet off and throwing it back at him. 

​Erving, a second-year player, is the Browns’ starter at center. He was replaced by Gabe Ikard. 

Irving is a backup defensive end with one sack on the season.
